Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Porsche announced that the 2021 Cayenne Coupe will add a sporty GTS model. It uses a version of the twin-turbo 4.0-liter that powers the mighty Cayenne Turbo, generating 453 horsepower rather than the Turbo's 541. The new model also has dark exterior accents, a lowered suspension, and other performance hardware and premium features.

PROS
Perhaps the prettiest fastback SUV,
drives more like a 911 than a crossover,
diverse powertrain choices.

CONS
Base models have less luxury,
all models have less cargo space than their SUV cousins,
large wheels affect ride quality.

For 2021 New GTS trim level that slots between the S and the Turbo.GTS has a 453-hp V8 and some extra performance upgrades.

PROS
Impressive handling for a crossover SUV
Wide selection of powerful engines available
Exquisite interior and build quality
Plenty of customization options

CONS
Quite a few optional features should be standard given the price tag
Gloss-black interior panels can look dirty almost immediately
Poor visibility out of the rear
Fans are weak at low speeds and noisy at high speeds
